As we got older though, we got closer together and now we’re like best friends. She is just like me and is one of the best things in my life. I only get to see her a few times a year, but whenever I’m with her is when I’m truly happy. Being with her takes all my stress and sadness away. She taught me to not be afraid of what people think of you.
For preparing my Activity 4, I ask myself what is the important thing for me. When I exclude the tangible things, I find affection, love and friendship are most valuable for me. Everyone has best friends. Maybe you’ve grown up together with them, or maybe you met them at work. Best friends always make you happy when you are sad or make fun times even more fun.
Once classes began it was even harder to meet new friends since I had to be so focused in my classes. As weeks went on I became more and more homesick and missed all my friends back home, and especially missed my dog. The one good thing about coming from such a big high school was that so many people I knew also came to UWEC so I always have someone to hang out with when I’m missing home, but then I realized that college was going to be no fun if I didn’t try to make new friends. So I figured what better way to make new friends then to hang out with the girls that lived on my floor. I started hanging with them every once in a while, and I’m so glad I did since now I consider them my best friends here.
The overall semester definitely had its up’s and downs . As a Peer Mentor I have learned to appreciate my hardwork much more and also learned that speaking up a lot is key to key action to many things. One of my goals for the semester as a Peer Mentor was to get to know my peer mentees on a friendship level or maybe as acquaintances. That goal actually came true in a way because I only made three acquaintances only. Another goal I had throughout the semester was to go outside of my comfort zone a little, I really didn 't like to talk in front of the class.
Negative aspects of the internship experience Overall, I had a very positive internship experience. While I gained knowledge from each experience, I believe the synergy sessions and switch site internship could have been scheduled differently. Often, I missed out on valuable lessons due to the lack of follow up on day-to-day operations. For example, if a situation took place on Wednesday, I wasn’t there to follow through on Thursday with the parent/guardian. I also felt that while the switch experience was very valuable, it would have been nice to have more time at my internship school before leaving for a few weeks.
It is hard to admit that school life is the best moment in my life yet i faced a lot of dilemma which made what i am today.”Things never quite as scary when your friends are around”.I always remember this lines as my friends always besides me on whatever i faced problems.Apart from studies ,school is all about friendship that i cherished so much.Until one night,the brotherhood the had been build for years was put into test.The night incident for me to see how loyal I had to my friends. It was Saturday night-free night for our school,we planned perfectly that night for the birthday celebration for me best buddies also my dorm mate.We actually prepared the foods as well as cake so that we can celebrate together .Since he was so popular in my school my dorm packed with friends just to celebrate his best moment.After we finished celebrated my best buddy birthday ,I knew that all my other mischievous friends planned to do the tradition that had been performed since ages but I not planned to join them because i felt it was wrong to do such thing to anyone because it will cause excruciating pain at that area which will last for days—or worst, for weeks. . To be honest,
The people who I’ve talked, laughed, joked, and everything else with, almost every single day. The bond we had made was strong and I hoped that it would be stronger through distance. Because if not it would be the most tragic event ever- I would lose my best friends. As I looked closer at the photo, my eyes wondered to my friend Alize. We have known each other since first grade, but more like the summer between
I found that many of the older people who came to our class would look forward to their interactions with the mentors and often said it was the highlight of their day. Growing technology is often like a foreign language to the older generation, according to a few of the people I talked to. However, if older people remain offline they will become increasingly excluded as it becomes more frequently used. When Lily first came in, the only thing she knew how to do was turn her mobile phone and tablet on. Throughout the weeks, she learned how to download apps, use the internet, and even wanted to learn how to take a
At dinner later that night my mother broke the new, “Honey, Miss Soar has requested your help at her camp this summer.” she said. I was in complete shock, not sure if I wanted to go I responded with “I’ll pass by her house tomorrow and tell her I’d like to help out. That was the end of it. First day of camp came and there were kids running around everywhere causing all types of ruckus, but I quickly adjusted. Then I noticed Miss Soar and she approached me “Hello, I’m so glad you are here!
Although i 'm thankful for many people in my life, one of the most impactful people over the past year is my 21 year old “Brother”, TJ. While my parents are very impactful and caring, as they should be, when i 'm with TJ - I dont have the stress of a parent around so I feel more open to talk and just let it out. Also, TJ is a sponge, he remembers everything about anything. So we could sit for hours talking about the most random things and not care about what is going on. Also, he will always listen to you, no matter what you say (As long as it isn’t about him missing a shift or wrecking the past weekend at the racetrack.)
